LookUp!

October 4, 2007

Screenshot of LookUp! Firefox extension

Sometimes you want to look up the meaning of a word, but that can be tedious with copying opening new tabs, pasting etc. This extension makes that process quicker! You can use it with Wikpedia, AskOxford.com, whatever!

  • Available here. (Doesn’t install automatically – open the file in firefox)
  • If you are a mozilla registered user, also available in the mozilla sandbox. (safer and recommended)

How to use
Highlight a word or a group of words and right-click. You will be presented with a list of sites where you can search for the highlighted words! To edit the site list go to Tools > LookUp! > Options… and add, remove or edit the list.

If you have problems, criticisms, bug reports, post them here!

Cheers, hope you enjoy it!

(I’d really appreciate a review – please include your Operating System name and version and Firefox version, thanks!)
